    i don't know if this is a sign of illness or what but for the past week all she does is stay in her moist hide. She shed a few days ago and has not really eaten much which I know after shedding sometimes they don't eat a whole lot but its her sitting in her moist hide 24/7 that has me a bit worried. Is this a sign of an issue? The temps haven't gone up over 83 in her aquarium so I don't think she is too hot. She looks normal and her last shed went fine. Any ideas?

    Mine does this occasionally, specifically if he ate too much last time. How are her droppings? Does she react if you open up the moist hide?

    No not really. I took her out last night and held her a while just to see how she acted and she seemed normal.

    I'll have to check the droppings I didn't notice anything odd though

    Well I just meant like does she seem alert when you pick her up, which sounds like she was fine.

    Is 83 day and night temps? Might just be a bit warm.

    I'll keep a closer check on temps and hopefully she will start acting like her normal diva reptile self soon
